I'm due to give birth in a few weeks. So have too much time on my hands wink
I'm aware I'm not going to lose the belly weight straight away and that I'll spend the first fee weeks wearing whatever is comfiest.
But I'm trying to thinK about the summer. I'm normally at work so having full time casual clothes is new, I'm going to be walking lots with baby and toddler so needs to be practical,and I'll still have weight on my tummy.
I'm 5ft 6 normally size 18/20. Big boobs and a bit of a belly before anyway.
Any ideas for clothes/styles would be much appreciated

Hello, I'm also about to give birth and am 5ft4 size 16. I have not bought a lot for the summer as I'm waiting to see what size I'll be once the bump has gone down but so far I have bought some things I can wear now and after:

A maxi dress (flattering over tum area)
The ivory and teal version of this http://m.asos.com/mt/www.asos.com/ASOS-Maternity/ASOS-Maternity-NURSING-Woven-Vest-With-Overlay/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=6162828&cid=5813&Rf900=1604&sh=0&pge=3&pgesize=50&sort=-1&clr=Lilac&totalstyles=201&gridsize=3&unjttt_v_frompage=3
high waisted slim fit jeans
Postpartum compression leggings
Loose fit Breton tops
Sketchers go walk (the comfiest shoes ever at 39 weeks pregnant and will be using lots when out walking with baby)

ASOS is a great place to look for nursing clothes if you're planning to breastfeed. I'll be following this post as I'd like some other ideas! X

Your size will change dramatically in the first month or so as your stomach goes down and back to normal. I usually head to next and deck myself out with their £20 summer chinos and cheapish tops, then replace those 3/4 weeks later with another set as I'm generally a bit smaller.
It will take time for the weight to come off but do best in mind the rapid changes in the first month and don't but too much in one go

Thanks both....it's taken being pregnant for me to get which type of trousers suit me so I'm hoping this is all.going to be a learning curve!
